Some photos of my wrap scrap quilt! I made this as a picnic quilt although I tend to use it more as a throw rug. I love to look at it and see scraps of wraps that I carried my children in or scraps of brands that were popular when I was babywearing. The scraps are mostly from Natibaby, Girasol, Didymos and Oscha wraps and a few from Tula Wovens, Pollora, Pavo, Diva Milano, Firespiral, Ellevill, and Kokadi. The quilt reminds of when my children were babies and how sweet it was to hold them close.
The quilt was made from woven baby wrap scraps and denim sourced from old denim jeans - I like the colour variations from the different pairs and the wear on some of the denim squares gives character. I quilted it by stitching in the ditch so the quilting is pretty much invisible. I added a machine washable bamboo batting as life with children is still messy and I want the quilt to be used. The binding was made from a lightweight denim and was hand sewn. I lost count after a while but I think this took approximately 20 hours to make in total. Cutting out all the squares took the longest! I only worked on it now and then when I had some spare time so it took about a year to complete. This is only the second quilt I have ever made and I was really pleased with how it turned out. It had the added bonus of making a good dent in my wrap scrap pile!
I love to sew. I have five curious and active kids who keep me busy!
